I could easily write a 20,000 word dissertation about why I can't, won't, shouldn't, don't want to, could or should put off my training - and it would be difficult to squeeze out 10 words about why I should train, and even fewer about wanting to because I still really don't.
Why should I train? I want to finish my first marathon this June.
See, told you - 9 words. :-P
Why do I want to finish my first marathon? ?? ??? I don't know - it's just on my things to do list. It will not make me a better person. It will not make people look at me and say, "Wow!!" In fact I probably won't tell most people - they don't really care. Maybe I'm hoping it will make me feel better about myself - I just don't know, If I can't feel good about my ordinary accomplishments then how will finishing an insignificant run help me?
Hills - 25 min 1:1 up and down - uugghhhhh. Really kicked my butt, but I did it. Unfortunately I forgot to start my Garmin until about 10 minutes into it, but I did get some data.
Just to prove that I can occasionally produce good news - Work is getting a bit better. In the last 2 weeks we gained 1 new driver and had 4 return from leave. We went from a severe driver shortage to being fully staffed almost over night. This will make it much easier to stick to my training plan - or at least give me fewer excuses for avoiding it.
